Are you passionate about the environment? Or an excellent communicator keen to inspire all ages? Or looking to gain valuable experience in conservation?

At Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) our vision is for a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free. We are looking for a dedicated summer Assistant to join our team at the Scottish Dolphin Centre, in Moray, Scotland.

The Visitor Centre is based in a beautiful location at the mouth of the River Spey. The largest bottlenose dolphins in the world can be seen feeding regularly along with ospreys, seals and a huge variety of other wildlife.

You will provide excellent customer service and a warm welcome to visitors in the centre. You will deliver interpretation about the bottlenose dolphins, seals and other wildlife of the Moray Firth, lead tours, and undertake land-based dolphin watches at the Centre. Training for these activities will be provided. This is a seasonal role running from June to September, working 5 in 7 days and you will be expected to work weekends.

You will be supported by volunteers and the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre team. Experience in interpretation and wildlife tourism would be advantageous but not essential as training will be given.
